  1. Thats how I do it, (option 2) but wasn't sure of the OPs firmware, so I just gave basic settings.
  2. Do not link Channels Record Raw Mid and raw side HP preset= set ISO1 left , ISO2 right- toggle MS button on lower right to on. What Mic (s) are you using?
  3. Money You will be paying a union while not working union jobs. If you are in the union, working non-union jobs is frowned upon by the union. Do this for the time being. Once complete, the union will invite you to join, but you can wait to join until offered a union job. https://www.csatf.org/rosters-lists/industry-experience-roster/ Here is another Pro. Say you get a job on a non union "reality" show, and 4 days into the shoot, the crew brings in the union to organize. Sign the card the union gives you to add your name to organize. If the union is successful, you can negotiate to wave the intiation fee, and 30 days without dues. Its an opportunity for them to sign on a new member. The worst scenario is you pay the initiation, and ask to spread out the payments over 90 days. I forget how much the the fee is now $3000.00?
  4. Im still holding my breath for an MKH 8030!!!') To go with MKH8040 to mid side!!
  5. Dont join the Union unless you have to. You can work on a Union job for 30 days without joining, or work non Union jobs for 30 days to get roster experience. Get on the roster (it costs nothing), but do not join (dont pay the initiation or dues). When a Union job comes up, you can say yes, Im in the union. Once you're on the roster, joining the Union is just a matter of handing money over.
  6. For short runs, I use Mogami 2552, 110 ohm AES rated. Very limp, and flexible in a bag.
  7. Call Aaron here: https://shockwaveaudioproductions.com Tell him Patrick (Top Chef re-recording mixer) sent you. He's been the production guy on my Top Chef shows forever!! See what gear he now rents.
  8. Unfortunately 5 rolls is not a quantity Canare, nor any distributor will want to do. Canare will only sell to distributors, distributors will only sell to retailers in truckloads. As Rick stated above, Markertek.
  9. What do you consider is a big order??
  10. Where are you recording? Could it be the 416 is more sensitive in the HF range?
  11. Large companies like Canare do not interface with the consumer. Try their distributor in EU GermanyTEL : +49-211-91734503
  12. Pretty poor noise reduction going on there, sounds like early Protools DiNR watery algorithm.
  13. They dont!! The SOundfield is still superior. The Rode is fine for the money.
  14. Yes, thats correct. If you're not using a 360 camera, it really doesn't matter, as you can reposition in Ambeo software plugin.
  15. Wouldn't it be better to sell the MIXPRE6, and get a MIXPRE 10 II? The extra TA3 pair will save you all that trouble! +18dB An extra 2 input channels too!! I saw one for sale here, pretty much unused.
  16. Yes, forget the fur. Cover the 703 with batting, the kind used in quilts. Mainly to keep fiberglass from shedding in the air. Rockwool is also a great product, but get what's available locally. Start with corners, you might be amazed with just that.
  17. That just won't work. Only high frequency verb might be minimized, but in the voice fundamental frequencies between 150 and 300 will still sound like a bathroom.
  18. Canare DA206 is rated 180m max!! The longest Ive used DA206 was in a wall 6 floors up and wall length could have been 30m. No issues.
  19. Just to add, Chris at Redco made me a beautiful 15 foot NT-SF1 breakout cable for $95 Using Redco TGS 4, and Neutrik XX XLRs, color coded boots, and channel labelling to match the Rode cable. Techflex on the fantails. It looks as if it was factory made by Rode!! These old hands would have had a hard time with a 10 pin XLR. Thank you Allen for the pinout sheet!!
  20. Good old fashioned customer service?? Not profitable?? Lost my NT-SF1 breakout cable (along with others), called Rode, $249 plus $22 shipping, granted I live 10 miles from them. Its $30 in parts!! Made in Taiwan.. A certain custom cable company offered to make one for $95!! Neutrik, and Mogami, same as theirs. Forgot to mention Rode does not have a cable stocked anywhere in the world!!
  21. I would think that you should be able to. The 10 pin connector has 9 and 10 designed for POE. Rode adapted the connector being an 8+2, that the 8 are for mic + and -. 2 larger pins were large enough to pair grounds.
  22. I have no intention of dismissing the OPs setup, its great. Addressing your comment. You can start out with a Mixpre6, and a Rode NTSF-1 (includes its own "Blimp/Zepellin") for a few hundred $ less.
